Subject: Beginning of the end of Education in the US
Mr Grimes' experience with this classroom full of well dressed hoodlums is eerily like my experience in junior high. Decent neighborhood with nice homes but too many parents who thought bowling football and beer were more important then kids bringing home decent grades. Boys with too many "A's" were labeled as fairies. We had one teacher though who had it right...e.g., that kid that was up at the front of the class would have been grabbed and flung up against the blackboard and his head rapped against the board while the teacher made his point. Baby, nobody...but NOBODY stepped out of line in that class again. Case closed!

I know--I taught in inner-city Los Angeles Schools for 20 years, and am the author of Classroom Discipline 101: How to Get Control of Any Classroom No Matter How Tough the Students.
Yeah, this is a commercial, one that saves teaching careers. Check me out at www.classroomdiscipline101.com
Subject: How not to teach anything
Its clear he lost control and no bodies behavior was good but the teaching approach was bad as as nothing was taught or explained to the studends.
I am keen on good manners and good class conduct but when the problem comes from the teaching methods that has to be corrected first. Even then this teacher has lost his credibility and would not ever find class confidence again.
Subject: Still a good after 58 years!
This was a very well made instructional movie for teachers. While there are new & different problems in the modern schools, the basic ideas of this film still holds.

Subject: Excellent Message
This film is a must! The opening messages are exactly what the best research on classroom behaviour tells us:
1. The vast majority of behaviour problems in the classrom involve minor breaches of discipline.
2. These incidents originate in the classroom situation itself and are within the control of the teacher.
3. Disciplinary problems in the classroom are symptoms of underlying weaknesses in total learning situation.
I love using this with teachers - who love it too - and the classic voice tone of the commentator is a bonus!

Subject: 4 detentions for you!! (finger wag)
An oddball film about discipline, we are shown a Mr. Grimes who totally loses control of his math class. Frustrated by the low marks, he takes it out on the students (while holding a protractor, is that symbolic?) by essentially calling them morons. Of course, this only goads the students into picking on Grimes a bit more until he's passing out detentions left and right (with excessive finger wagging). Now, what is wrong here? The film says it's the teacher, you see by being calm with the students, why, the classroom will be calm with you? As Bill Cosby would say, "Riiiiight." If you have unruly students, just laugh it off, make a witty comment and everything will be hunky dory again! Riiiight. God, I can just see the beginnings of a total henpecked teacher with the classroom just rolling all over him. This film is quite funny actually, and is highly reccomended!

Bad teacher Mr. Grimes uses insults and totalitarian tactics rather than teach. Narrator interjects edu-speak to explain ... well ... just about nothing. But the new improved example of Grimes actually teaches and the students like him.
